Keypoint Intelligence Ranks Canon #1 Inkjet Market Share for Third Consecutive Year

Canon U.S.A., Inc., has announced that Canon has been ranked number one in the U.S. for continuous feed, cut sheet, and total-high volume inkjet market share for the third consecutive year. Based on InfoTrends data and published by Keypoint Intelligence, the new report places Canon in the highest ranking in the three key metrics around inkjet market share.

“Today, printing companies know that inkjet is a big part of the future of their business. The question becomes whether they have the infrastructure and support for inkjet to propel their business forward,” said Shinichi Yoshida (pictured), executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A. Inc. “At Canon, we have not only invested in our product portfolio to help address our customers’ evolving needs, but we’ve also placed a priority on the consultation, service and support we provide to help ensure that our customers are well prepared to see the benefits of their investment. I think that has been a big factor in getting us to where we are today.”

“There is a massive growth opportunity for suppliers who develop inkjet printing technology as they benefit from page migration from other print technologies. In the U.S. alone, page volume for high-speed inkjet continues to grow at a fast pace to reach over 200 billion pages (A4/Letter) by 2022 representing over 12 percent (CAGR) growth in five years,” said Ron Gilboa, group director, production, Keypoint Intelligence. “Canon’s leading position stems from its ongoing investment in inkjet technology and, more importantly, in their customers’ success that propelled Canon to this market share position for three consecutive years.”

Canon Solutions America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., has been instrumental in helping maintain prominence in the U.S. as the nation’s production inkjet leader, operating as the sales channel for such innovative products as the Océ ProStream and Océ VarioPrint i-series inkjet presses, which offer outstanding image quality, speed and efficiency required for high-end applications. The market share gain is also due in part to increased offerings to commercial and book printing accounts.
